The infighting in Ford Kenya party has intensified with each camp throwing jabs at each other.
Factions led by Kanduyi Mp (Interim Chairman), Eseli Simiyu (SG) and Bungoma governor Wycliffe Wangamati pits of those led by embattled party leader Moses Wetang’ula.
The rivalry in Ford Kenya party is serious that they can’t see each other eye to eye.The party SG Eseli Simiyu now says that the party National Delegates Conference (NDC) will kick out Wetang’ula.
Speaking on Sulwe FM, Eseli said that if the delegates kicks out Wetang’ula it will help them pick another person to run as their Presidential candidate in 2020.
“We want the delegates to remove him and pick another person who will propel the party’s interests, Weta is a mean person who only means well for himself,” said Simiyu.
He added, “We need to exit him and chose somebody who will be our presidential candidate in 2022, we need to strengthen the party and improve its national outlook,”.
The Tongaren Mp accused Wetang’ula of running down the party hence leading to mass exodus of its members who joined rival parties.
He said that the Bungoma senator has been sabotaging the party from within hindering its growth.
“The owners of the party who are members and delegates have resolved to kick him out, he has been leading us with an iron fist and is a great dictator,” said Simiyu.
He pointed out that the organized NDC meeting on November 21,2020 at Bomas of Kenya will go on as planned.
“We paid for the venue and have fulfilled all the necessary things needed, we are currently meeting all the party delegates in the 47 counties, we want them to attend so that we can ratify the changes in the party,” he said.
However, Wafula Wakoli a former Ford Kenya county youth leader dismissed the planned meeting as pure drama.
“What might take place at Bomas is National Drama Conference not the Ford Kenya National Delegates Conference, those planning it are failures who are trying to rejuvenate themselves,” said Wakoli.
So far, Wetang’ula has received a court order which stops the embattled members from calling for or convening any meeting at Bomas of Kenya.
